On the 2nd May 2013 two French hikers, holidaying in the Isle of Skye on Scotland's west coast, were rescued from the mountains after becoming disorientated in a storm. With no other means of contacting help they activated their Fast Find Personal Locator Beacon. Within minutes the RAF Rescue Coordination centre at Kinloss was notified. They then passed GPS location details via the Scottish Police to the local Skye Mountain Rescue Team and the UK Air Rescue Co-ordination Centre, who deployed a helicopter.

New Zealander Patrick Cahill describes how he was recently rescued following an accident on a hunting trip.
“My Queens birthday hunting expedition took a serious turn when catching my foot on a rock resulted in a tumble which dislocated my knee. While not in immediate danger this injury left me unable to walk, especially taking into account the rough terrain and the distance from our car. After assessing our situation my hunting mate and I decided the only course of action was to activate my McMurdo FastFind 211 PLB.
